It's the second year for the Jacksonville Gluten and Allergen Free Wellness Event on November 14 from 10 am - 3 pm at the Prime F Osborne III Center, and we have a fantastic lineup of presentations and vendors for you. As always, we are lucky enough to bring a pre-event webcast to you completely free of charge so you can get a preview of the incredible information that will be given at the event.

So join us right here on Thursday, Nov 5 from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm (we went over by 16 minutes:) to listen in to the following speakers:

Julia McRae has been in private practice for over twenty years, as a Certified Nutritionist. She herself suffered with Ulcerative Colitis in her youth. She has been colitis free for 30 years. Her passion to see others recover bowel health is one of the primary focuses of her practice. Customized, nutrient dense protocols are designed to bring lasting digestive health. She is a frequent guest speaker at Wellness events and for private businesses. Julia remains true to her belief that bowel health is a foundation to a strong, functional immune system.

Jen Eccleston- Author of the blog “my BIG FAT grain free life” and owner of Jen Tilly Tea. Using humor and quite frankly, crybaby moments, she seeks to deal with food allergies, bowel health and autoimmune disease while retaining her belief that allergen free food really CAN taste delicious. Along the journey, Jen learned the important role probiotics play in overall health. After learning to make water kefir from a health conscious friend, Jen found herself and her family addicted to the delicious drink, and, just to make things weirder, she named her kefir grains. She now operates blue bottle bootlegger, hosting classes on the benefits of water kefir, including demos and tastings and allowing attendees to meet the offspring of "Squishy".

Jennifer Cuevas- The Gluten & Grain Free Gourmet supports delicious eating that is gluten, grain, soy, and poultry free. Jen Cuevas experienced her own journey to wellness by eating this way, and desires to share the message that life can still be delicious!

Dana Martin - As she encountered more and more people with allergies and herself being diagnosed with multiple restrictions, she began to transform their restaurant recipes to fit the needs of allergic eaters. This began her work in the recipe and product development for many gluten free companies and her cooking show with her family that broadcast LIVE every week around the world. Her desire is to see each person gain optimal health thru their eating, by creating good habits, and a desire to live healthy and delicious. She wants everyone to “Come Taste and See How Good it is to be Gluten Free”

Jenna Drew - Jenna Drew has been active in Gluten Free and Celiac Disease Awareness since 2007, her most prominent event was the first annual Celiac Awareness Night with the Pittsburgh Pirates. She officially was introduced to Celiac Disease in 2007 as her mother underwent a very slow and painful diagnosis. After having a gene panel test, Jenna was surprised to learn that she inherited the gene for both Celiac Disease and Lymphoma. She began following a strict gluten free diet in 2009 after her Celiac Disease diagnosis and symptoms of needing a gluten free diet became severe through rapid weight loss, unbearable migraines and more.

Beth Mincher, CHHC, AADP - Beth is a Certified Holistic Health Coach who received her training through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She focuses on helping people achieve optimal wellness through a whole body approach that emphasizes the importance of not only diet, but other factors such as: physical activity, personal relationships, career, emotional wellness, lifestyle, prevention and the use of natural therapies.
